Project Based Learning

All of our students successfully participate in Project Based Learning (PBL) at AES.   Students investigate and respond to a real life problem or challenge.  Each grade level creates a different unit based on content standards with a focus, for example, on math.  Studen​ts shared their knowledge in multiple ways, ranging from designing a blueprint for the perfect outdoor classroom space to gathering evidence for a debate, such as, nature vs. nurture.  Click on the link below to watch an overview of PBL.

English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)

The Quality Basic Education Act provide for the creation of programs designed to help English language learners. These programs develop proficiency in the English language skills of listening, speaking, writing, reading and comprehension so that students can experience success in their classrooms and in social contexts both inside and outside of the school. Students from other cultures become acclimated to American culture through language-based instruction. All instruction in the ESOL program is given in English to facilitate the acquisition of English language skills for successful academic and social pursuits.
